This comprehensive one day energy-auditing workshop with Andy Wilson will enable course participants to carry out their own energy audits up to the standard used in the Building Regulation Technical Guidance Document 'L'. The workshop will cover a wide range of conventional and alternative building materials, and will examine the energy relationship between the different components of a building.

The workshop will also examine the influence of draughts/air leakage and look at ways to estimate the performance of a building when the standard of workmanship is less than best practice - something which is not addressed in the Irish government's recently introduced Building Energy Ratings. 

The final part of the workshop looks at the use of electricity for lighting and for running appliances, and considers ways in which electricity consumption may be reduced. Off-grid power based on renewable sources of energy is also discussed in detail.

The workshop is aimed a sustainable builders, architects, third level students and hoseholders wishing to learn more about domestic energy use.
